Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday hailed the passage of the 2 contentious farm bills within the Rajya Sabha and congratulated all farmers for his or her passage. He was talking at a digital occasion after inaugurating ‘Ghar Tak Fibre’ scheme and different improvement tasks in Bihar.

They were the need of the present hour and our government has brought this reform for the farmers. Farmers can sell their produce wherever they see more profit,” mentioned PM Modi.
The Prime Minister reiterated his assurance relating to the system of minimal promoting worth (MSP) and mentioned that it will proceed unhindered. “I want to assure every farmer that the Minimum Support Price system will continue as before,” he mentioned.
